    Are there more than 2 of these in BG2. I love these scrolls, as they're great to take out liches, mages, irenicus, etc. by casting it on THEM. (eliminates all their spell protections plus prevents them from casting any more spells).

    However, I could only find two at Ribald's store. Does anyone know where I can find more?

    I dont remember finding any in the rest of the game but it could be that I simply missed them. I too have used that tactick on a mage befor and it works very well. I just wish there where more scrolls of it around.

    Wow, I never thought of casting protection scrolls on someone like that! Now all of those cursed ones have a use...

    Hmm, I prefer casting them on myself. My last game I cast one on myself took out kangaxx and ran to the twisted rune and finished that be4 it stopped working
     
  6. I've found up to five or six, IIRC. I believe that a few can be found at temples, and Lady Yuth at the back of The Adventurer Mart.

    Maybe you have something unofficial installed? I finished the game many a time but only found 2
     
  8. I had the Bonus Merchants installed, and something with the romances that I didn't want, but didn't bother to delete. Otherwise, it was BGII, pure and uncut. :)

    [​IMG] No.
    As Ragusa and kemanmaldea said there are only two of those available in SoA.

    Lady Yuth does not trade with those nor anyone else except Ribald.
    Plus, there is no place in SoA you can loot those - this means they are NOT included as random treasure!!!

    Anyway Yogojunzo, nice tactics! :thumb up:


    [EDIT]

    Bonus merchs and romance hacks plus I guess some unofficial fixes and ToB and TDD and custom kits and...?
    That's pure and uncut BG2?

    Not very likely. :toofar:

  10. I never said I ToB, TDD, etc.

    What's wrong with having ToB installed? It doesn't add Deirde, that patch does, and I don't see how that has any effect on the number of Protection from Magic scrolls you can get...

    [​IMG] Have you every read the forum description?

    BG2 Forum (this one)

    "For posts concerning the second part of the Baldur's Gate saga without the expansion installed. Posting any ToB-related material is not allowed in this forum."

    ToB Forum (where this should be if he's got ToB installed)

    "Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal
    For posts concerning Baldur's Gate II with the Throne of Bhaal expansion installed. You must post here even if you are playing only the SoA part of the game. Comments and questions welcome!"

    This is not debatable. Pure and simple, if you have ToB installed, you post in the ToB forum. And I don't care if you're playing just Irenicus's Dungeon. You will post there. We've had countless posts trying to figure out something and then the poster just casually mentioned that he has ToB installed, which, of course, solved it right away. That's why I made a ToB forum, so that things like that don't happen any more.

    Hi there...

    I also discovered this little item, and yes it does work wonders.

    In reply to where you can find them, I have not come across any more than the 2 I found in the Ad Mart.

    But they do work when you have them in the quickslot of your player and use the simalucrum spell on him. This creates a new guy with the spell in his quickslot, you can then use that without having to use the old one!!! Try buying the helm of vailor! Good luck!

    A cunning idea

    If you had a simalucrum scroll in your quick slot and cast simalucrum with a memorized spell, you would create yourself with a simalucrum scroll in quick slot, then get him to cast simalucrum, and so forth, effectively creating an army of yourself.

    Deathmaster yes indeed, but I found out a few months ago that with the patches they unfortunately removed the items of the simulacrums of simulacrums
